Peroozal intro

Peroozal

Your Favourite Authors. Their Favourite Books

About

Peroozal is a better way for consumers to find books and for authors to find readers. This is a marketing/discovery platform where recommendations by authors are aggregated so that the readers can discover their next great read.

Peroozal provides readers with an access to authors books and all the recommendations he has received for his books from other authors. The service also connects users to the authors at the time of the purchase of the book and helps authors keep in touch with their readers.

With no publishers involved, Peroozal allows only the author and the reader sign up and gives an opportunity to sell ebooks and regular books to readers, sell services to authors, and advertise.
